A Wonderful Start to the School Year

Thank you for sharing your children with us! We’ve had a wonderful start to the school year. The first day ended with everyone (students, teachers, and staff) in the courtyard blowing bubbles to celebrate the new school year. Last Friday, we celebrated Summer Reading by dressing as a favorite book character. Be sure to ask your child about my “substitute,” Ms. Viola Swamp! We had a record turnout at our first Skating Party held Monday, thank you for participating. Lastly, hearing the students sweet voices praise God during Chapel this week was heartwarming. Be sure to ask your child how Dr. Shell explained loving God in 3D (fist and hand motions). Remember, you are always welcome to join us in Chapel on Wednesdays from 8:30-9 a.m. What a joyful beginning we’re having to a new school year!
